Quiet and pristine, the Philbrick Trail is a remarkably isolated refuge of nature set in the midst of a busy urban center. Philbrick Trail is marked by blue blazes and loops up and around the gorges that slope down to the Kennebec River. Some of these blazes have been weathered away, but the wide trail is easy to follow and is well maintained. The only trailhead to Philbrick Nature Trail is located at the end of Joyce Street next to the Pollution Control Department. When entering the trail, you will see the Skowhegan River Trail to your right.
